Jake Maines moved to Hampton Roads when he began his studies at Old Dominion University in Norfolk in 2011.
As soon as he arrived at ODU, he became very involved in the community. His love for the beach wouldn't let him leave so he moved out to Virginia Beach upon graduation, and currently resides near Town Center.
Jake enjoys volunteering & fundraising for Lynnhaven River Now, The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia, and the local animal shelters. He is also active with The Noblemen, tHRive, CBDA/CBDX, ODU’s Center For Enterprise Innovation, & Hampton Roads Innovation Collaborative.
His efforts and passion have earned him the accolade of Millennial On The Move from CoVA Biz Magazine.
One thing that sets Jake apart from his peers is his knack for connecting people. His monthly Networking Happy Hour events have quickly grown into the biggest and best networking meetups in the area. To get on the list for the next Networking Happy Hour, CLICK HERE
